  1. hey so i got this new computer a few weeks ago, the specs are:

    1tb memory
    4gigs ram
    nvidia 9800gt
    AMD 5400 dual processors

    Now, I play counter-strike 1.6, and every 4-5 mins the game will just completely freeze for at least 2-3 mins, and I have no idea why. I have turned that afinity for hl.exe to 1 processor and it still has the same problem while I have also ran the AMD optimizer off the site that is supposed to help with games. It is not my internet because it happens on my college and also at my home. Any ideas would be extremely appreciated.

    Well, it's an older game so I might look into running some different video settings. It shouldn't really matter what the affinity is set to... I don't see Half-Life, CSS, TFC or any other GldSrc engine games using more than one core anyways. What happens if you enable v-sync or run the game at a lower resolution? Also, what OS are you running?
